Leo

Leo July 23 - August 22) Why bother arguing here? You're a Lion, you own it, you know it, and we all agree. There is no other animal for you unless it's a mini Lion, or a cartoon Lion, or Lion figurine. It doesn't matter. You roar, we cringe and back off, no matter...

Virgo

Virgo (August 23 - September 22) You're a pig, and we mean that with total respect. Virgin, schmirgin! Who the heck thought that one up? You're no virgin, that's for sure, nor are you pure and innocent. However, you are smart and you do love a good roll in the filth,...

Libra

Libra (September 23 - October 22) The scales. Huh? No Libra in the history of the world has ever been even-keeled or well-balanced. You're a cockroach: you survive it all, and mostly by walking on top of people. Libra Libra (♎︎) is the seventh astrological sign in the...

Scorpio

Scorpio (October 23 - November 21) Yeah, being associated with a Scorpion sounds cool and threatening, but are you even slightly cool and threatening in real life? Nah, you're more bark than bite, which makes you a dog. All that Scorpio toughness makes you a...

Sagittarius

Sagittarius (November 22 - December 21) You're a horse in so much as you always have hair in your eyes, but it ends there. You're much less fiery Centaur than you are wimpy mouse, and mouse you are, Sagittarius. Hiding in the dark, happily munching on your cracker,...

Cancer

Cancer (June 21 - July 22) Being associated with a crab is just such a downer. A crab? Come on, anything has to be more potent than a crab. You're much more of a whale than a crustacean, any day. Wise, stealthy, somewhat slow but powerful, with a mean mating call....

Gemini

Gemini (May 21 - June 20) That whole "twins" thing is cool when it's there to describe your two-sided nature, but if we had to pinpoint your spirit animal, it would have to be a minnow, or, maybe a sardine. You're the anchovy of the zodiac: little, stinky, and...

Pisces

Pisces (February 19 - March 10) If there's one animal that could represent the piece of work that you are, Pisces, it would have to be a squirrel. You're fastidious, quick, and selfish. You hoard until there's nothing left, and you glut yourself until you pop. You are...

Capricorn

Capricorn (♑︎) is the tenth astrological sign in the zodiac out of twelve total zodiac signs, originating from the constellation of Capricornus, the horned goat. It spans the 270–300th degree of the zodiac, corresponding to celestial longitude.

Under the tropical zodiac, the sun transits this area from about December 21 to January 21 the following year, and under the sidereal zodiac, the sun transits the constellation of Capricorn from approximately January 16 to February 16.

In astrology, Capricorn is considered an earth sign, negative sign, and one of the four cardinal signs. Capricorn is said to be ruled by the planet Saturn.

There appears to be a connection between traditional characterisations of Capricorn as a sea goat and the Sumerian god of wisdom and waters, Enki, who also had the head and upper body of a goat and the lower body and tail of a fish.

Later known as Ea in Akkadian and Babylonian mythology, Enki was the god of intelligence (gestú, literally “ear”), creation, crafts; magic; water, seawater and lakewater (a, aba, ab).

In Hindu astrology, the equivalent of Capricorn is Makara, the Crocodile.

Capricorn Cultural significance

Ancients had many legends about a strange goat, Capricorn. His figure is often connected to Zeus (Jupiter in Roman mythology), head of gods. Babylonians believed that Capricorn was a Sea-Goat, a god named Ea, who brought learning and culture to the people of Mesopotamia. It was believed that Ea lived in the ocean and that he came out of the water every day to watch over the land and returned at night.

According to Greeks, Capricorn was associated with the demigod, Pan, who was a man from the waist up, and a goat from the waist down. He was the son of Hermes and a forest Nymph. He was raised by nymphs after his mother, disgusted by his appearance, abandoned him. Pan tended sheep and goats and was a talented musician.

Capricorn supported Zeus in his battle with Typhon, and in thanks Zeus immortalized him by transforming him into a star constellation

His libidinous nature also drove him to go after the nymphs who usually fled in panic at the sight of him. One of them, Syrinx, begged gods to be turned into reed which Pan used to create the well-known Pan flute. At one time Pan himself was fleeing from the monster Typhon and tried but failed to turn himself into a fish. However, he supported Zeus in his battle with Typhon, and in thanks Zeus immortalized him by transforming him into a star constellation.
